for birds. most can house about 50 or more bats at one time. each bat can eat as many as 1,000 mosquitoes and other flying insects in an hour. some people say they never thought of the idea of getting a bat box, but say they might now. >> i think it would be a really good natural way to eliminate the problem or at least reduce the problem. >> while we're sleeping, bats will be eating mosquitoes, so i'm for it. reporter: sleeping, all right. experts admit it's difficult to gauge the effectiveness of bat boxes. our web team has put together everything you need to know about the zika virus, just head to wfla.com. hands off that, is the warning this morning wildlife officials have for sea turtles

in trouble, i would call animal services. reporter: those with the fwc sea turtle management program say it takes a few days for these hatchlings to dig out of their nests and once they are out, they are vulnerable to predators. any distractions on the way to the sea can be debtly including bright lights from as the sea. if you want to help, hands off, turn your lights off at night and let these guys make it to the sea the way nature planned for them to do. >> all right, picking up a sea turtle hatchling to take a photo or messing with the nests is against the law. you're asked to call the hot line if you see stranded or dead sea turtles. we have that on our website,
